One of England’s most beautiful Gothic buildings, Salisbury Cathedral has dominated the landscape since its construction in the 13th century.
The spire is the tallest in the UK, at just over 400 feet, and the cathedral also boasts the largest cloister in Britain. Tours take in the decorative interior as well as the views from the spire.
The cathedral is also known for its lovely cathedral close which occupies 80 acres, one of the oldest working clocks in the world, and one of four original copies of the Magna Carta. It’s been painted several times by the British painter Constable.Places nearby:
